Abstract
This master thesis was written in a time when major changes in global sustainability and
climate architecture were happening. Aim of this thesis is to look into how a single
manufacturing company can, through enhanced energy efficiency, contribute to global
sustainability in multiple ways. This study contributes to the existing body of literature in three
ways. Firstly, it gives structure literature review of current research on industrial energy
efficiency. Secondly, it seeks to understand in which ways can single manufacturing company
asses its actions against global sustainability criteria. Finally, this thesis focuses on energy
efficiency enhacement practices in a rubber compounding factory. Crucial part of the research

for this thesis was conducted in a polymer compounding factory. Methodology utilized in this
thesis is rather transdisciplinary and it was chosen based on appropriability to the research
question. (Less)
